Vienna, 1877. Empress Elisabeth of Austria turns 40. Always famed for her beauty but craving freedom, she finds herself battling between conformity and rebellion against expectations.
Actor Vicky Krieps worked closely with director Marie Kreutzer on this stunning retelling of the life of the real empress, and the result is an unconventional costume drama, which presents an alternative, feminist view of this historical figure.
